A Farmer's Market Cafe in Hollywood

Whether you’re on the go or sticking around awhile, Jane Q offers LAMILL coffee, vegetable-driven dishes, and house-baked focaccias and pizzas all-day (there are perks to having the Hollywood Farmers Market only a few blocks away). We keep it simple: fresh ingredients, prepared with care and served in a low-key neighborhood atmosphere.
